i need to colour some fondant turquiose for a cake due at the end of the month. obviously i havent got any and cant find anywhere that sells this colour.

so my question is how can i make it myself? what colours do i need and how much of each? is there a website/chart that would help me?

Ugh its a shame you can't find it, Wilton sells a gorgeous turquiose. Its actually my favorite color so I use it on all my personal cakes lol

The turquoise cake in my profile pic was done using Wiltons "Teal" gel paste. Not mixed with anything else. Start with that to see if you get the colour you want. You should be able to get it in the UK fairly easily though.

I just realised that in the pic it doesn't look turquoise, but it is, promise icon_biggrin.gif

Americolor sells turquoise

Heres a thread with a mixing chart for chefmaster and americolor. Even if you don't use those brands its a good starting point.
Hope that helps and Good Luck!
